I was born a gypsy, wandering the world from birth courtesy the United States Air Force. I hate the question "Where are you from?" because I need clarifiers... do you mean, originally? Or, like, do you mean where I live now? Or, do you mean where I consider myself to be from based on the criteria of most years spent there? Because those all have different answers.
Currently, I call Chicagoland home. I have a day-job helping people with things no one loves to talk about, much less think about- I try to take the burden of these things from my clients so they can enjoy life just a little bit more.
I have two grown kids who seem to tolerate me well and two Great Danes who only care about being fed. I've been married since forever to a man who does laundry, dishes, and drives a big truck. (No, you can't have him.) When I'm not working or writing, I can be found running or binge watching Dateline. My favorite fruit is a fermented grape, preferably aged in a nice Oak barrel.
